STATEMENT FROM DARREN CHESTER ON AUSTRALIAN SUSTAINABLE HARDWOODS ANNOUNCEMENT
Daniel Andrews has today ripped the heart out of Heyfield.
The announcement by Australian Sustainable Hardwoods it will close the Heyfield mill by September 2018 is entirely the Premier’s fault.
Politics is about choices. Daniel Andrews made a choice and he chose possums before the people of Heyfield.
I promise to the people of Heyfield, and Gippsland, that I will work to keep the mill open.
There is no reason why anyone should lose their job.
It is a viable, world class business that could continue to operate if Melbourne Labor MPs voted to support hard working local people.
Our community will not stand by and let this happen.
The fight to keep this mill going is not over.
